Your Book Recommendations Please! - WFMW {Backwards Edition}

06 January 2010
This is theme week on Works For Me Wednesday.  It is a backwards edition where I ask YOU a question instead of providing a tip of my own. 

I am in serious need of some new reading material.  Serious.  Need.

Right now I'm reading Obsolete by Anna James Grossman and another book that I am saving for a post of its own because it is making me smile that much.  Some books I love and recommend highly are Memoires of a Geisha, the Stephanie Plum series by Janet Evanavitch, The Year of Living Biblicly by AJ Jacobs, The Idiot Girls Action Adventure Club by Laurie Notaro, Lottery by Patricia Wood, Freakonomics, the Harry Potter series, and The Power of Intention by Wayne Dyer.  So yeah, a little bit of everything!  Oh, and I *may* have a secret addiction to the Gossip Girl book series too.

Tell me what to read next, your favorites, books you loved and would recommend to your best friend!  I'm so looking forward to hearing your suggestions.

The Glass Castle, The Kite Runner, The Road, My Antonia, The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night Time, Go Ask Alice, The Herbivores Dilemma, and Loose Girl are all awesome books I have read in the last year.

oh and if u can handle it. American Psycho is by far the most twisted yet amazing book I have ever had/willingly after a few pages read and loved.

Did you read The Secret Life of Bees? I know it's been out for a while, but that is one of the best books I've read lately!

You must immediately read (if you haven't already) Pillars of the Earth. The Doctor's Wife is good. I love love love Don't Stop The Carnival. But seriously, Pillars of the Earth. Now.

A Thousand Splendid Suns and the Kite Runner.
Also, The Double Bind by Chris Bohjalian - best book EVAR!

Brittany said... know what I am currently drooling over. Again and again. Clearly, I need to get laid.

But, this made me pull out a chick lit list Jordy and I had going for a while, when we were stuck in part time college jobs, and we had time to devour girly books.

Jemima J by Jane Green
She's Come Undone by Wally Lamb
White Oleander by Janet Fitch
In the Time of Butterflies by Julia Alverez
Pride & Prejudice and Zombies
Chelsea Handler's books are a quick fun read

Ashley said...

She's Come Undone and White Oleander are awesome ones. Also The Lovely Bones and Stephen King did an amazing spooky ghost story a few years back (okay probably like 10) called Bag of Bones.

Steph, you're on! I have tons here and would love to swap some.

I'm hooked on the Outlander series by Diana Gabaldon. Everyone I know who has read them has loved them! It's historical romance set in 1700 Scotland with a time travel twist (sounds weird, but the books are sooo good).
